Establishing and maintaining your online presence

"… a sense of presence is 'being there' and 'being together' with online learners throughout the learning experience. It looks and feels as if the instructor has placed the learner at the center of the course development and created the course for that learner. It also looks and feels as if the instructor is accessible to the learners and that the learners are accessible to the instructor and each other, and that the technology is transparent to the learning process." - Lehman, R.M. and Conceição, S.C.O. (2010) Creating a Sense of Presence in Online Teaching. Jossey-Bass, San Francisco, p. 3.
